Imbolc

The Brides Bed is Ready
For our Lady Bridget to rest in twain
Marked with the sign of Gebo
Blessed is the last sheaf of grain

Gathered are the woods of winter
Yule fires did burn bright
Blessed be the first signs of spring
Our Lady shines with her light

A time of waiting for the bough to bloom
A time to make neat the witch's broom
A time of thanksgiving for deliverance
From winters deep cold
A time to make ready for spring time so bold

Hail  Heimdall, Keeper of the rainbow bridge
The frost on my windows your waters ways
Let your crystals guard the passes
Hail Frosted one, your memory stays

Hail and be welcome Nanna
Mother Goddess of Earth
She who walked the by ways of darkness
That man might know light
Hail and blessings be Mother of Rebirth

Hail Mother Freya, Mistress of storms
The air blows sweet from your passing
Let your Magick guard us round
Hail to our Lady everlasting

Hail Bridget, Fire Mother of the forge
Your cloak is our deliverance
May it guard the circle from all untoward
Blessed be triple Mother of Fire born

Light the torches
Ring out the shout
Let the power be heard round about
Call we to springtime
Wondrous Mothers warmth
Call we to blooms soon to spring forth
The years harvest is full
Blessing be that we are fed
Call forth now the re birth
Of springtime's stead

Light the candles in the window frames
Let the peace flow over the landscape
Let the joy of life be claimed
One for love, one for light
One for the newness of life
That shines thur the window pane

Bright the sacred woods burn
Bundled round the hearth we go
Sip cups of mead to bring life's joy
Bright is the fires flame

Blessings to the world
Up the chimney with the smoke
Safe and sound the whole of creation
Waiting for the land to be awoken

Off to the threshing floor we go
To render the harvest gained
Blessed be the Mother that lives in each grain
Bread to bake for Candlemas
Braided with Joy and Hope
Hail to the Goddess for her favor
Shown in this breaded rope
One for Maiden bringer of life
One for the Mother of gold
One for the Crone who is the seed of tomorrow
Hail to the Mother of Old

We stand at the foot of the rainbow bridge
Fire and Ice made whole
New made wreath of the harvest straws
Laid down to give thanks for all it holds
Ice holds sway for a time yet
But the promise of tomorrow is told
Hail to the Goddess of New life
Hail to the Ice maiden so cold

Frost and Fire
Seed and new Life
Greetings to the springtime that waits
Hail and blessings Great Lords
That one more winter soon abates

Round we go with torches bright
Through the fields and orchards
Reminder to the trees and flower
Of the warmth of springtime's bower

Hail  Heimdall, Keeper of the rainbow bridge
Keeper of waters ways
Ice Brother who guards us
Hail Frosted one, your memory stays

Hail and thank you, Nanna
Mother Goddess of Earth
Guardian of the Light of new life
Hail and blessings be Mother of Rebirth

Hail Mother Freya, Mistress of storms
Your lighting wards in your passing
Thank you for your graciousness
Hail to our Lady everlasting

Hail Bridget, Fire Mother of the forge
Inside your cloak we are comforted
Thank you for sharing fires promise
Blessed be triple Mother of Fire born
